Our story

I’ve always been a traveller, from backpacking round the continents to family travel in and outside the UK. My passions have been understanding the local cuisine as part of the wider culture and bringing some of those tastes and styles home.  And so it is with HeyChesto.

My experience of travelling with my four children led me to believe that there must be an easier way of organising their clothes as we gently rolled from location to location, snow to sun, city to countryside.  Always looking at ways of creating more time and ease is how HeyChesto came about with the launch of our first product which incorporated innovative shelving!

The catering business that I set up 25 years ago taught me about quality, fresh thinking and energy and I have brought these elements to HeyChesto.

The HeyChesto team are very excited to introduce our new products, suitcases with fabulous and fun linings in four new colours without the shelving.  It is our absolute goal to create and perfect beautiful and glamorous travelling apparel. HeyChesto is all about fun, style and spontaneity – we are filled with joy and gratitude when fellow travellers and customers love our/their HeyChestos as much as we do!!
